While riding on public transportation (bus, L, etc.), is it OK for commuters to talk about whatever they want to talk about with their friends.

I think I seen something like this on Inside Edition last year, but it was in New York. And they citicize the Hip-Hop generation wear their pants around their knees... Indecent Exposure is off limits!
